In this podcast, we speak to Dennis Pamlin, Global Policy Advisor, WWF, who is the author of a report titled “Global strategy for the first global IT strategy for CO2 reductions". The report was supported by HP and details ten existing technology solutions that have the potential to reduce the one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions – the equivalent of nearly one-quarter of the European Union’s current CO2 emissions.
In this podcast, we speak to Mette Andersen, Special Advisor to the Danish Centre for CSR, who is the co-author of our recently released report titled “Small suppliers in global supply chains - Partnerships for sustainable competitiveness“. The report is based on an exhaustive study of HP’s small and medium company suppliers based in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.
HP in partnership with UNESCO set up projects in South East Europe and Africa to begin addressing the problem of academics having to move abroad to further their research and employment prospects ('brain drain'). The project reconnects university faculties to the web through grid computing technology and allows them to link to international colleagues and university resources.
Unemployment is most acute for the age group that represents our future. In the European Union alone, 18 percent of young people below the age of 25 couldn’t find a job in 2006. HP’s answer is to empower these young people through GET-IT: a new kind of training that combines the basics of entrepreneurship with practical, hands-on experience in the use of technology.
Podcasts are audio files that you can play on your computer or digital audio player. If you have a portable MP3 player you can listen to them wherever you want. We are continually adding new podcasts, so bookmark this page to see what's new.
You can subscribe to podcasts the way you do to an RSS feed. You will need "podcatching" software (similar to an RSS news aggregator) to be able get automatic updates of your favorite podcasts. Podcatching software can also synchronize podcasts with your portable digital audio player so that you can hear podcasts while you're on the go.
But you don't need an iPod or other player to listen to podcasts. You can still use podcatching software to subscribe to the podcasts you want and listen to them on your computer. Or simply choose to listen to the stand-alone MP3 file.
